Rolene Strauss looked absolutely beautiful on her wedding day

She may not be the reigning Miss World anymore, but she looked like royalty on her wedding day.

Rolene Strauss was an exquisite bride as she said 'I do' to her longtime sweetheart D’Niel Strauss. The two tied the knot on Saturday at the Lourensford Estate's Laurent wedding venue in the Western Cape. The 23-year-old glided down the aisle in a bespoke gown by designer Casper Bosman.

“It will be a real fairytale,” she gushed to YOU last month.

Rolene shared a photo of the two at the altar on Facebook and Instagram, with a link to  more photos from the big day on her website.

The photos are definitely a must-see -- take a look here.

Now that her reign is over, the brunette beauty is looking forward to finishing her medical studies at the University of the Free State -- and settling down to life as the new MRS Strauss.

Unfortunately, the two won't be living together just yet. Rolene is now planning to move into a flat in Bloemfontein while D’Niel, who’s the director of an investment company, continues to be based in Stellenbosch. She’ll join him once she’s completed her studies.

“D’Niel will probably fly up on Thursdays and return on Sundays,” she says. “The first two years of our marriage will be a commute. But that will be good because I’ll have to work hard.

“For the past two years he’s let me fly around and hoped I’d return. He was there from the start. I don’t know how I’d manage without him. He’s 10 years older than me, has so much wisdom and always helps me make decisions.”

She’s a bit nervous about becoming a student again. “I know I’m a good student but I’ll be with people two years younger than me. I hope they get to know me as Rolene and they won’t haveany preconceived ideas because I was Miss World.”

When she’s qualified as a doctor she wants to start a women’s health centre and her future plans are ambitious. “I’ve visited all these countries and places – but on my own. I want to experience the world with D’Niel. “I also want a family and to be the best mom I can be. We initially planned to have five children but now we’re down to two – so we want between two and five. The Strauss couple are always planning.” She’s looking forward to it all. “I have so many plans and things I still want to do. Miss World was just part of my dream.
